Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, Bird Banding Laboratory, Laurel, MD, USA. pp. Data from the North American Breeding Bird Survey (BBS) indicate that the northern margin of the breeding distribution shifted 115 km north over a 26-year interval (Hitch and Leberg 2007). Thompson III, W.B. Matthews, S., R. O’Connor, L.R. A. and A. S. Love. 1987, 2007). 2007). Mark-recapture estimates of local survivorship (birds that survive and return to the same breeding site) for SWCR are 9.8% (SE=1.6%) for young, and 48.0% (SE=2.9%) for adults (Calvert and Badzinski in prep.). 1985. 2001. (1994), and Bodsworth (2004). Stutchbury, W.H. Stutchbury. Cadman, P. Carson, K. Elliott, M.E. 2011). Females in small fragments do not travel far (<130 m) and therefore have limited mate choice relative to females in continuous forest (Norris and Stutchbury 2002). “We almost always see hooded warblers in the same area of the forest and I try to take photos of them.” 1998). Scientific Name: Setophaga citrina (Boddaert 1783), French Name: Paruline à capuchons Class: Aves. Forest composition appears to vary regionally, with various studies reporting positive or negative associations with deciduous hardwood forests or with pine (Mitchell et al. Stutchbury. and S.K. Hooded Warbler Migratory Habitat. Forest Ecology and Management 260:1241-1250. Journal of Wildlife Management 61(1):159-171. 2011). The Birds of Canada. Ridgeley, R.S., T.F. Identification Guide to North American Birds, Part 1: Columbidae to Ploceidae. These were, and what plumages they possessed - like everything American, Flashier and grander by … Ontario Ministry of Muncipal Affairs and Housing (OMMAH) 2005. Due to ease of access and proximity to known sites, survey effort was concentrated in the extensive public forests in Norfolk County and public lands within the few large forest complexes elsewhere in the Carolinian region of southwestern Ontario. The Hooded Warbler is a forest-obligate species and breeds in mature forests in upland or bottomland situations (Chiver et al. Winters in southern Mexico and Central America. Special Publication, Canadian Wildlife Service, Canada. Breeding was first confirmed in 1949, when a nest was found at Springwater Forest, Elgin County (Gartshore 1988; Bodsworth 2004). Pond, A.C. Couturier, E.H. Dunn, C.M. Queen’s Printer for Ontario. Howlett, J.S. Determinants of between-season site, territory, and mate fidelity in Hooded Warblers (Wilsonia citrina).

During migrations, the edges along Stone Barn can be excellent for migrating sparrows, which have included Harris’, Le Conte’s and Eurasian Tree. Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR). 2002. Hooded Warbler spring migration count indices 1961-2010 and trend at Long Point Bird Observatory, Norfolk County, Ontario (courtesy of Tara Crewe, Bird Studies Canada). There are often other warbler photography opportunities too at the breeding grounds, like for Kirtland’s Warbler and Blue-winged Warblers in Michigan for example. Accessed 26 April 2011. Cadman. The Hooded Warbler has been the subject of numerous field studies across various parts of its breeding range, wintering range, and at migration stopover sites (Chiver et al. Atlas of the Breeding Birds of Ontario, 2001-2005. Parasitism rates are highest early in the breeding season and late nests are infrequently parasitized (Badzinski and Calvert in prep.). There has been little net change in forest cover in the Carolinian region, which at 15% overall (versus 72% agriculture) remains well below the 30% minimum threshold considered necessary to maintain forest bird diversity (OMNR 2000, 2006; Environment Canada 2004; Badzinski 2007; Crins et al. They are generally solitary on the breeding and wintering grounds, but they may join mixed-species flocks that pass through areas on the wintering grounds. Zuckerberg, B., A.M. Woods, and W.F. Change in avian abundance predicted from regional forest inventory data. Iverson, and A.M. Prasad. 1998. They are great spots to visit during the breeding season and spring migration especially. More recent breeding occurrences (2006-2010), including records from an extensive targeted survey in 2007 (see Sampling Effort and Methods), fall within the 2001-05 EO polygon. Baker. 706 pp. 2011). 2011). Counts have also increased in areas east and northeast of Norfolk, particularly in Niagara and Hamilton Regions, but have not increased in other parts of southwestern Ontario, where numbers remain generally low. Figure 4. Wintering habitat in Mexico and Central America has been affected by deforestation and agricultural intensification (Conway et al. A wildlife species that no longer exists. Ontario Landbird Conservation Plan: Lower Great Lakes/St. There is little evidence to support the view that the availability of appropriate breeding habitat in southwestern Ontario is the primary factor limiting Hooded Warbler population growth in Canada, as proposed in previous reports (Page and Cadman 1994; James 2000; Friesen et al. SARA prohibits harming or possessing a listed species, or damaging its residence or critical habitat. Andrew Couturier of Bird Studies Canada provided the map used in Figure 2. M.Sc. No biochemical or genetic studies are available. 2011; BSC unpubl. The paternity of Hooded Warbler nestlings has not been studied in Ontario. The 2011 population estimate is based on the 2007 count data and assumes that the overall population has a balanced sex ratio with few non-territorial floaters such that the number of mature individuals is twice the number of breeding territories.
